UPDATE: Anthony Ervin has met his $10,000 indiegogo fundraiser goal! Here’s his thank you video.
SwimSwam participated by donating $250 for an Anthony Ervin written SwimSwam-theme song. We will share the song when Anthony delivers.
Below is the first SwimSwam report on Anthony’s fundraiser explaining the details:
Anthony Ervin is not leaving the sport. He’s staying, and he’s bringing all of his creativity to the table to make it happen, but he needs our help.
Indiegogo is one of the go-to sites for individuals raising funds for their endeavors. For Ervin, it’s the 2012 FINA World Cup Series. Ervin is not getting support from USA Swimming as this is an international series. The costs come out of his pocket.
Ervin needs $10,000 in support, and he’s giving back in Ervin-esque style. Go here for details, but one of the cooler items on the table is his “rock ‘n roll themed” World Cup Tour T-shirt.
